Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Hamina, Finland - Updated 2021

airbnb Hamina, Finland

Whether your trip is for business or pleasure, there’s plenty to bring you to this corner of Finland. Hamina is within striking distance of the Russian border, just 35km (22 miles) away, and only 145km (90 miles) from the beautiful and vibrant Finnish capital of Helsinki - making it a great stopping off point for tourists looking to travel between the two countries. And there’s much that will appeal to business travelers too - indeed, one of only three data centers operated by Google is based within this important port town. And, if your trip is for pleasure, there are numerous sights to draw the eye - from the 18th-century-star fort of Hamina Fortress to the Town Hall and its links to the noted German architect, Carl Ludvig Engel. Whatever your reason for traveling, these top Airbnb vacation rentals offer plenty of choices when looking for accommodation options in and around Hamina. Find out more below.

1. One-bedroom flat for up to four people (from USD 48)

Likely to appeal to couples, this one-bedroom flat will comfortably accommodate two people but it can sleep up to four if needed, thanks to the addition of a sofa bed - opening up the possibility of use by small families. It is based in the community of Karhula, roughly 19km (12m) west of Hamina along the busy Valtatie 7 road (European route E18), placing it just a 20-minute drive away. Naturally, its position near to the E18 - which stretches all the way to Helsinki - means there are good transport connections in the local area. Flat amenities include wi-fi internet, a TV, and full kitchen - the latter of which will come in useful for some home-cooked meals. There’s also free parking, which will be useful for those seeking to drive to the Finnish capital or elsewhere along the coast.

This newly-built wooden property comes with plenty of mod-cons too, including wi-fi internet, a full kitchen, a TV and an indoor fireplace for those frigid winter months.

4. Guesthouse for one or two people (from USD 133)

This is another option which is set within an easy reach of the Kymi rail station. And, as with entry number six, this property is operated by the same host and within the same site. However, unlike entry six, this guesthouse room is likely to appeal to smaller groups - especially couples. Capable of sleeping up to four people, but perfect for one or two people, it enjoys access to a range of mod-cons. These include wi-fi internet, a cozy indoor fire, a TV and kitchen facilities. What’s more, it’s position in the same area as option six opens up the possibility that larger groups could be accommodated by booking both properties simultaneously - availability allowing, of course.

What’s more, guests can also rent bikes or make free use of the host’s rowing boat to get about - opening up a few options for charming days out. Guests should bear in mind, however, that the nearest food shop for essentials is a mile away (1.5km).
